Dear Ben & Frank

Which is for real men: graphic design or illustration?

Question Submitted by Marc

Ben SaysTo me it’s not one or the other anymore, it’s about doing what is right for the project. For me personally doing a lot of my own illustrations happened out of necessity because most of the clients I worked with early in my career couldn’t afford to do photography or even hire another illustrator. I will say that at this point it’s become something I enjoy and seems to be working well for me.

          

Frank SaysReal men combine them both.
I’d like to think what I do designery illustration.
Ben probably does something that could be considered illustrationish design.

Jobs: Cash or satisfaction?

Question Submitted by Anonymous

Ben SaysSatisfaction over cash, but the trick is of course to find the balance between the two.

          

Frank SaysDoes it have to be one or the other? I hope not... if so, this is going to be one long career I have to slug through.
